My only son (9 Yr) is now a student of Class IV in a School at semi-urban area with his mother along with one of my relatives family (4 members) separately. I am working in other place away from them and attending week end / holidays. My wife is looking after every thing. She is efficient, accommodative, and is teaching child. At home have no TV connection. Child is (i) very arrogant and is not intending to study; (ii) eating too much, health is good; (iii) talkative other than study matter; (iv) mobile, computer may be handled quickly and can practice any play without any target; (v) has ability to grasp any songs/music; (vi) during study period he can grow different reasons to away from the class. Because of him my family peace is going away from home. My wife is becoming unrest for him. School is not far away, five minutes by walk.

Seems like he is a highly intelligent child but not in the academic sense and is showing signs of emotional disturbances. He has probably entered puberty at an early age. The other thing is whether he has had any developmental problems earlier that are beginning to surface looking for a resolution. These could also have an impact on these observations of yours. Kindly meet with the school counselor, and if they do not have one, then perhaps a child counselor will suffice. A change of house around the age of 9 has also been reported to disturb some kids. Is he allowed to play organized games either at school or at home? Exercise and games will exhaust the excess energy that may help him calm down for school pursuits. I feel that a tutor may be useful to help him settle with his studies. Keep in touch with his teachers to know what their feedback is and work with them as to how to help him. No TV may be a problem for him. Have the TV but discipline him around it. Your absence, especially at his age, is probably affecting some of his rebelliousness. Sometimes too much parental strictness only invites rebelliousness at this age. Do not allow excess eating: not only is that a health hazard but it is also making him compensate by oral gratification and the obesity may become difficult for him to lead an active life. Now the brief time that you come over on the weekends cannot be all spent in reprimanding him either, but besides that, do spend quality time with him as much as you can. Your wife cannot be both father and mother, at the same time.

What Gives You a Wrist Pain and How to Identify it?

A very common complaint, a number of factors can cause wrist pain but arriving at the exact cause can be a tad bit difficult. Depending on the cause, wrist pain can vary in intensity.

What causes pain in your wrist?

Injury to any part of the wrist can lead to wrist pain and impinge on your ability to use the affected hand and wrist. The causes can be injuries like sudden impacts and repetitive stress; arthritis like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis; or diseases such as carpal tunnel syndrome that affect this part of the body.

1. Sudden impacts

Falling forward onto your extended hand can give rise to instances of wrist pain. Injury occurring from this sudden impact can cause not only sprains and strains but also fractures.

2. Repetitive stress

An activity that involves the movement of your wrist in repeating motions can cause the joint tissues to be inflamed or give rise to stress fractures, especially if the movement is performed without any break for a long period of time.

3. Rheumatoid arthritis

In this disorder, both the wrists can get affected. In general, the disorder sees your body's immune system attacking tissues of your body.

4. Osteoarthritis

Although the condition is very uncommon in the wrist, it occurs in individuals who have suffered a wrist injury in the past. Osteoarthritis typically happens when the cartilage that acts as the cushion at the end of your bones undergoes deterioration with time.

5. Carpal tunnel syndrome

An increase in pressure on the median nerve (a nerve that affects the sensation or movement of your hand) that passes a passageway called the carpal tunnel can cause you to suffer from wrist pain.

In addition to these causes, instances of Kienbock's disease and ganglion cysts can also lead to this problem.

How to identify the signs of the problem?

The pain can vary depending on the cause. So, wrist pain arising out of osteoarthritis will exhibit a dull pain while that from carpal tunnel syndrome will give a pins and needles sensation. Many times, the location of the pain can help the doctor to determine the cause behind the symptoms you may experience.

From a husband's point of view 'A Happy Wife Means a Happy Life'. To keep most women happy is giving them unconditional love and support. If a husband wants to love his wife unconditionally, he should always be sure that her emotional tank is full. One of the best ways to do that is to affirm her constantly, let her know by words and actions that you value her, respect her and lover her.

For ages a husband's role has been that of a provider and protector. Men earn money to support the family and women would take care of home and children.

In the present scenario, most husband and wife are equally qualified but still women are and will always be mothers too, so they can never be free from the responsibilities of taking care of home and above all taking care of their children. While carry out all these responsibilities, her own goals and dreams take a back seat.

Give her the confidence: When a wife is handling various roles, her husband's support is very important for her to succeed. A husband supporting his wife through all phases also gives a very positive message to their children it indirectly evokes extreme confidence in them throughout their life.

Support her: A husband needs to give his wife confidence that you can do it and I will help you do it. Be it in taking care of children, progressing in career, adjusting with the in-laws and small or big things men should encourage and support their wives achieve happiness.

Treat her as an equal: Husband and wife in marriage are meant to be equal partners. Both need to work as a team in order to have a successful family. Though husbands and wives have different skills and characteristics, each of them contributes to the success of a happy home.

Make her feel special: Helping her in her responsibilities or small actions to make her feel special are enough. These give her the reassurance that you are around.

Be there when times are difficult: The best is when you there to sort out her problems and to make things easier for her. Be there to support her in times of stress. It could be work, family or a personal issue, handle it together.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, I understand your fear but can you see you just wrote whole sentences with punctuation marks and full words. Realize that you can cope with it. Practice mental rehearsal - doing well and deep breathing exercise to calm your anxiety. The above written question is a proof for that. Revert back all the best.

Dear Doctor, My brother has schizophrenia for more than 8 years now. He is not able to get recovered from his situation. Though he is able to talk to us like a normal person, he is not able to take a responsibility. He is jobless and showing no interest in anything. I am worried about his future. He is under medication. But he is not getting better. Medicines control his hallucinations for the time being. But it's not curing him completely. Please advice.

Schizophrenia has a strong genetic component. And has poor prognosis. Complete cure may not be possible. You should all mold yourselves as per his world and instead of forcing him to accept your reality, let him make peace in his reality. Putting pressure will only worsen it. He may start working a little when you operate from his framework of perception.

Hi I am a mother of 2, an architect but have never had a constant job. Gave up for all the family reasons like kids, care for elders, family etc. My husband is into business but he is never had a constant source of income. He is from the past 5 years dependent on my family, sometimes he earns or borrows from his family and takes care of his needs. Me and my kids my family is supporting us. My family thinks I should leave him because of this and am not sure as my younger one is attached to her father and not sure how she will take it. He manipulates kids emotions to suit his will, so am scared if something goes wrong. Also, have been trying to start something, have been unsuccessful. Need to really get out this rut, please help.

Dear friend, from what ever you have told so far, I understand that it must be very tough for you to manage and hold everything together so far. Also my perception is that you are not only smart, intelligent, loving and caring but you are also strong woman. I think I am safe in believing that your husband, for what ever reason is not willing to work hard and earn to support himself and his family. I would not be surprised if he is an addict (drinking or something other). (if this is not the case, then you need to take him to a psychologist or counselor for help and support, as he might be depressed due to multiple unsuccessful attempt in his business. If he has support and love, he can bounce back and you all could have your happy life back.) if he has chosen not to work and live on others' income and support, it is best if you separate from him and start your independent life. Of course as you know this is a major decision and needs to be taken after thinking thoroughly and with due preparation. I would suggest you to start your on business. As you have your family's support, it will be relatively easy to start working and getting financial independence. It may take some time but during this time, you need to think pros and cones of leaving your husband. How your life will be different and what kind of help and support you might need and how could you make sure you have it this is also a good time to slowly talk to your kids and prepare them for the situation. You may tell them your perspective and tell them they will be able to continue their relationship with their father. Telling lot of negative things about your husband is not a good idea because then they will be confused and if they believe what you are saying then they might also believe what your husband tells them. It is always a good practice to be honest and authentic and focus more on how you both independently are good human being but together you are not helping each other and you are not happy together. Hence, you have decided to go your separate ways. I would strongly recommand you to be financially independent when you are along instead of depending on your family for your basic need. This will set a very good example for your kids and it will make them stronger and better adults as they grow up. And it will also play crucial past in building your self confidence and self esteem. I wish you very best in the process. Please engage yourself in some kind of relaxation exercises and activities. Regular meditation will help you stay calm and focused. Also daily physical exercise will help you manage your stress. Eat well and sleep well. More raw vegetables in form of salad and yogurt also helps both in maintain and building your immune system. If you need personal help to think this through and in making a sound strategic plan, feel free to contact me or call me any time. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,

Dear , at this age you cannot have memory issues like amnesia. You are possibly having problem with concentration, memory and recollection. The best method to improve your concentration, memory power and recollection etc is to use your brain creatively again and again. Doing number puzzles, creative hobies like painting, games like chess etc can sharpen your brain and improve concentration. Exercise plays an important part in sharpening the brain and in many aspects of memory. Nutritious food including green vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals and pulses are beneficial. Alcohol, nicotine, drugs, coffee, red meat etc are not that good for sharpening brain and memory power. Being happy and cheerful also contributes positively. You may ask a private question to me for more information. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user you seem to be suffering from poor self confidence and low self esteem, which is making creating lot of negative feeling in you about yourself. This seems to be the reason which keeps you preoccupied with any thing you do. The best approach would be to consult a clinical psychologist in your vicinity and under go psychotherapy or counseling as deemed necessary.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You don't mention your age or how long and how much you have been smoking. Any way when quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Absolutely ill-advised. Your mind often proposes a better experience and certainly it appeals to the libido to entertain such fantasies but it is rampant with trouble and dangers. Since you are already satiated with your wife, you should not indulge i such fantasies because it can lead to impulsive behavior. This can ruin your marriage and this desire may become addictive and you may not be able to stop it later on. The danger of infection itself is worrisome. But why would you want to spoil a good relationship to pander to your erotic fantasies? Just drop the idea and get on with improving your relationship and giving your wife a great time in life for being able to so satisfy your needs so well. Otherwise, you are tampering with your own peace and settled life to ruin it for good.

It is very natural to feel emotional pain in such situation. Give time to yourself to heel and recover from this trauma. Avoid to be alone. If you are able to help and support yourself, you will be able to support your kids. They are going to learn these coping skills from you.
